Deaf services and hearing support

Services to Deaf and hearing impaired people are provided through the health and social care partnership. For more information contact NHS - about adult social care

Sensory impairment services

We have developed a single strategic approach in partnership with other bodies to ensure that community services offered to people who are Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing, blind or deafblind are based on good collaborative practice.

For more information, please see Talking sense in the Highlands – a single strategy for sensory needs in the Highlands
